Wealthy Affiliate - Advice for beginners

by Emilio Puente 9 replies
I'm a newbie in everything related to affiliate marketing.

I have been looking for courses or tutorials to learn how to work efficiently as an affiliate and I bumped into Wealthy Affiliate.

Any comments about this course? Should I take it?

Do you know any other course I can learn from?

    Do you know what types of traffic you intent on using? Wealthy affiliate is decent for some free methods but I would go a different route for paid traffic.

    They do offer some value for beginners.

    But they do tend to turn a lot of people off due to their negative marketing tactics.

    If you don't enjoy calling everything a scam, they may not be for you.

    These guys even called Niel Pattel a scam.

    Wealthy affiliate does have over 800,000 members and you can sign up as a free member and have a look around the site.

    You want to be careful with the Wealthy Affiliate program - especially if you're looking for reviews in Google.

    The vast majority of 'em are Wealthy Affiliate students who have setup these review sites so they can do negative reviews on IM products and then recommend the Wealthy Affiliate every time.

    Now that would be alright if it was true but the vast majority of these sites haven't seen the products they've reviewed.

    I know this because I've bought some of the products they've reviewed and it's absolutely mind-blowing the amount of incorrect information they give in their reviews.

    (I’ve even spoke to two Wealthy Affiliate members and they’ve told me first-hand they don’t buy the products they review and they just research the said product by Googling other reviews)

    Some of these reviewers even go as far as to call every product they review (excluding the Wealthy Affiliate program, of course) a scam.

    Hell, they've even called me and my product a scam. It got so bad I had to write a blogpost disproving everything they’ve said about me and my product which you can read here as I go more into detail about it there.

    Personally, I've never had access to the Wealthy Affiliate program but I'm pretty sure this is what they teach because I've spoke to previous members and there's literally thousands of these sites affiliated with the Wealthy Affiliate using this exact method.

    You can Google any internet marketing related course and I guarantee you'll see these fake reviews in the search results.

    Thankfully, once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ‘em all because they all follow a similar template so they're quite easily avoided once you're familiar with them.

    If you want honest reviews, the best place to go is right here in the review section of the Warrior Forum.

    Affiliate links and self promotion isn’t allowed so you’re much more likely to get a genuine review/opinion on the said product.

    Have you looked into the blog, advise, books, training from Rosalind Gardner?

    She is a super affiliate, has been around for a long time, she "walks the walk" and is legit.

    Her book is a classic:

    Super Affiliate Handbook: How I Made $436,797 in One Year Selling Other People's Stuff Online

    Give it a look.

    The best to you,

    I'm not yet hear about that course, I know a lot but sure that i don't know everything.

    But if i never heard about that course, you should be careful.

    Ultimately, you still need to take action, try something. Don't be afraid to make mistake

    The way to do it right? DO IT WRONG FIRST.

    I hope best for you.

    Oh man. You are in the right place

    Where there are a lot of gurus hear and ready to help you.

    I don't care what kind of ecourse will you get. But it must follow this structure at least.

    1. Choose a niche
    2. Choose a product
    3. Create a squeeze page (you don't need to have a website, blog, but squeeze page is a must) to build your list and set up Autoresponder
    4. Drive traffic into your squeeze page

    Then Cha - Ching.

    Here's My recommend: Stick with one niche untill you success. One product, one traffic method at a time.

    Wealthy Affiliate has some good training geared towards newbies but I prefer My Lead System Pro.

    Just my two cents...
